Bears Scare At Fright Fest, Cleats for Charity, How Inman Could’ve Helped and Other Bullets

Chicago Bears

I hope the Chicago Bears’ defense is as scary today as they looked here:

  • Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune notes the last time the Bears were .500, cornerback Kyle Fuller was six weeks into his rookie season back in 2014. Things have changed for the Bears since then, to say the least. Fuller’s head coach is currently leading the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, while his defensive coordinator is now coaching up the defensive side of the ball for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Fuller is playing his best ball since his rookie season, when he came up with three interceptions in six games. Fuller has played more than 90 percent of the team’s defensive snaps and hasn’t had any health setbacks one year after missing the entire 2016 season with a troublesome knee injury
  • A win on Sunday would send the Bears to .500 and put the team in a position to dream the biggest dreams regarding its second half, writes JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago. Remember how difficult that first-half schedule looked prior to the start of the regular season? To come out 4-4 after facing a schedule where seven of the eight teams were above .500 is no small order. That would lead the Bears into an off week to get healthy before a second half where the Bears can make up some games in the division against the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions – twice.
